After adding all spices to the shrimp, allow it to marinate for a few minutes before frying it in a skillet or air fryer for a few minutes until pink and cooked through with a slight crust.
Quick and Easy Chipotle Fried Shrimp
- Add cleaned, peeled and deveined shrimp into a bowl.
- Add all spices and seasonings and mix well to combine. Let sit for a few minutes to marinate.
- Add shrimp in a single layer to a hot skillet and cook for approximately 2-3 minutes until pink and the seasoning has browned and formed a slight crust. You can also add shrimp to an air fryer preheated to 400°F (205°C) for 5-8 minutes, shaking intermittently to ensure that the shrimp is cooking evenly.
- Serve with fresh cilantro and lime wedges. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 6 months.
